London terrorism

with 105 comments

Sorry, I don’t have anything deep to say about this.

How many terrorism attacks does it take before political leaders finally change their attitude toward massive immigration from Islamic countries? Or their attitudes towards freedom of religion that includes freedom to practice any form of Islam? Probably a lot more than we’ve had.

Trumpdate 5/25/2017

The en banc 4th Circuit decision to uphold the lower court’s ruling that Trumps travel ban is unconstitutional is outrageous. It says that because Trump said mean things when he was campaigning, this means that everything he does as President is unconstitutional if liberals don’t like it.

The announcement by the UK that they won’t share any more intelligence with us because of leaks is a gift for Trump. Trump needs to escalate this and make it the #1 priority of the FBI, to find and prosecute the leakers.

ASF writes: “There is no constitutional right to a specific number of refugee admissions. He should have set the number to 20.”

That wouldn’t have mattered. The court is saying: We know that Trump is a racist, and therefore we’re not going to let him get away with anything. And don’t try to tell us that Islam isn’t a race, that’s something only a racist would say.

Trump call with Rodrigo Duterte

This is pretty interesting, and I think better of Trump after reading it.

Notice how Trump makes Duterte feel important by asking for his opinion on how to deal with China and North Korea, and then he coaxes him into lobbying China to do more about North Korea.

Who leaked this? Because it makes Duterte look good, and probably everyone else in the Philippines is too afraid of Duterte to cross him, my guess is that Duterte himself leaked it.

Proles love Trump, even prole Saudi Arabians

From the NY Times:

There was neither beer, nor tattoos nor women at the biker rally in Saudi Arabia’s capital on Friday night. But among the hundreds of men riding on roaring Harley Davidsons and sporting leather vests, there was overwhelming excitement about the incoming visitor: President Trump.

“We want to welcome Trump,” said Mohammed Alrasheed, 35, who had outfitted his motorcycle with a large green Saudi flag next to the Stars and Stripes of America and wore a helmet decorated with quarters, dimes and nickels.

That’s why I continue to believe that the foreign hackers who broke into John Podesta’s email did it because they are prole, and proles love Trump, and not because the Russian government was paying them.

Emmanuel Macron wins, Marine Le Pen loses

As I previously predicted. But that was such an easy prediction to make.

It occurred to me that the difference between Len Pen and Trump is that Le Pen understands her political philosophy, while Trump is a bozo who just happens, because of his strange psychological makeup, to have the same values from the fifties that he grew up with, but otherwise he has no political philosophy at all, and furthermore he seems completely unaware of the details of what his TruCon staffers are doing.

Looks bad for France

There’s no way that Marine Le Pen can win the runoff election next month. She didn’t even beat Macron in the first round, and now all the forces of French propaganda are telling people they must vote against against Le Pen. Every losing candidate, no matter how much they hate Macron, are loudly saying to vote for him.

So France is going to get a President fully committed to open borders and who praises Angela Merkel’s policy of unlimited immigration of Muslim refugees.

Emmanuel Macron’s wife 25 years older than him

Weird stuff. She was his school teacher when he was 15 years old.

Marine Le Pen

Too close to call if Marie Le Pen will have more votes than Macron, but both will be in run-off election. Need more time to digest.

Syria in perspective

It has been six days since Trump bombed Syria. There’s no evidence that Trump has any intent of doing anything else in Syria. We let loose a few missiles, not a single American soldier was in the line of fire, and it’s not even clear that any Syrians were killed (although the Syrian government claims some were killed).

Trump still seems to have benefited immensely from the missile strike. The mainstream media has turned down the volume on the Russian Conspiracy by a huge amount. Most of the mainstream politicians whose support Trump needs to get anything done are very happy about the strike. Some Trump-haters in the media are expressing their exasperation that Trump has benefited so much from the strike. That’s how we know it was a good move for Trump. If it was bad for Trump, the Trump-haters would be gloating about it.

Syria Attack. Is it good for Trump?

I think the answer is yes.

1. It’s always good for the president when there’s military action overseas, at least in the short run, because people rally around the flag.

And there’s no evidence here that Trump intends to get American soldiers stuck in a long ground war.

2. Had Trump done nothing, for weeks the MSM would have been showing us pictures of the poor children killed by the Sarin gas. Trump heads that off and makes the MSM shut up.

Also, it seems that Trump gave warning about the attack so that the airbase could be evacuated, heading off the negative publicity of pictures of dead victims of the attack.

3. Trump sends a message to North Korea and other countries up to no good that we mean business and we’re no longer the wishy-washy country previously led by Obama.

* * *

There are a lot of yahoos in the comments insisting the chemical attack was a “false flag attack.” Sounds like a dumb conspiracy theory to me. Even the Russians and the Syrians don’t say that, their story is that they accidentally blew up an Al-Nusra Front (aka Al-Qaeda in Syria) chemical weapons storehouse.

Trump has access to intelligence information that I don’t have. I’m not in the mood to believe that Trump was duped by his own intelligence agencies.

Even if he was duped, why does it matter? The world knew about the attack and blamed Assad, Trump had to do something. Even in the unlikely event that the “false flag” conspiracy theory is true, then we should thank the false-flag people for giving Trump the opportunity take advantage of it.
